Overview

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa - 4 Bedrooms - 4 Baths - (Sleeps 9-10)

True to the grand style of the best of Mexican beach homes, Villa La Golondrina - 'House of the Swallow' - is a successful marriage of Colonial and Modern architecture set in the warmth, color, and tropical opulence of the azure Caribbean. From the sun baked Saltillo floors, jeweled with a traditional Mexican tile - the azulejo golondrina - to the dramatic and colorful Colonial kitchen, this gracious four-bedroom villa has been lovingly designed by owner and architect, both of whom appreciate the classical design of the Mexican Hacienda. As with the celebrated old Yucatecan Fincas, the villa opens to a lush, private garden and full size fresh water swimming pool, shaded by tropical fauna and tall palms. The high ceilings and flowing spaces of the interior, opening through French doors to the flowering garden outside, blend together to create a truly exotic Caribbean experience.

A popular gathering spot at the Villa La Golondrina is the rooftop terrace, reached by the interior or exterior staircase, where the guests may enjoy the warm sunny days and the magical evening hours of the tropics. Lounging and dining furniture as well as a built in bar provide a very comfortable perch from which guests will savor the spectacular 360-degree ocean view.

The owner of Villa La Golondrina has a passion for Mexico and everything Mexican. The hope of the owner is to share with guests the 'ambiente' of this beautiful country, as well as the glories of the magnificent Caribbean.

Wonderful experience, great location, lovely owner and staff

  • 5 of 5
There were 11 of us staying here in June (my parents, sister and her family and my family-kids ages ranged from 4-14) and we had the most wonderful time. It is always a little nerve-wracking to rent a home sight unseen except for internet photos. Frequent contact from the owners prior to our arrival definitely calmed those fears. And when we arrived, we were thrilled with the villa's size, location and quality. The pool is huge, definitely the biggest one in Playacar Phase 1. And the villa is located at the end of the street on the farther side of the development from the 5th Avenida shops so virtually no foot traffic. And literally one house back from the beach-and what a gorgeous beach! You can access the shops and restaurants on 5th Avenida by walking thru the neighborhood or along the beach-it's a bit of a walk but not terrible-did use a stroller for the 4 year old. The daily staff took wonderful care of us but remained very unobtrusive. Nice big bedrooms and lots of bathrooms, perfect for an extended family group. We would definitely stay here again and didn't want to leave!!!

Love, love!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were so fortunate to have found this beautifully authentic Spanish house by the beach. We were literally steps from the beach but yet it felt so private. The house was perfect for our large family. There was so much to love about this place. The location was perfect, the house was clean and spacious, the pool always clean and refreshing. The staff was lovely and they took such good care of us. Thank you Gloria for all the great tips. They made our trip extra special. I would highly recommend using Angela to stock the kitchen and cook a few
meals. We had so much fun planning our meals with her. Although we speak very little Spanish she somehow knew exactly what we were asking for.
The walk to 5th avenue took us through the quaint neighborhoods and right past several Mayan ruins. We enjoyed everything about our trip and would not hesitate to return to Villa La Golondrina. It is truly a special place!

Just perfect.

Could not have been happier with Villa Golondrina. We came for a week with friends and had the time of our lives. This truly is a luxury property with authentic and thoughtful design, amenities, and service. We were immediately blown away by the sheer amount of space you have in this villa. The rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. The house is full of beautiful artisan Mexicana and the grounds are just lush and lovely. Luci and Sr. Abel looked after us so well and made us feel at home. We loved that we are only a few seconds' walk from the semi-private beach which is of course just absolutely stunning. The development of Playacar is beautiful, safe, and friendly. I love how quiet it is there though you're in the middle of town! Villa Golondrina has amazing tips and recommendations for Playa del Carmen that are ready to go when you arrive. The restaurants mentioned there were just fantastic. This is a perfect place for a large group or family--everyone has their own space but you still get that hacienda-feel that the owner has obviously worked hard to achieve. We'll definitely be back.

Miss you Golondrina

  • 5 of 5
Today March 19th, outside of my home a snowstorm, all is white outside and it is beautiful, BUT!!! I miss so much la Villa Golondrina. We have a GREAT Vacation in this Splendid Authentic Mexican Villa locate in Playacar Phase 1. The kitchen was so huge, we were 5 and never disturbing each other when we cook. All was perfect and we are very lucky to get this privilege to get this kind of vacation. The location of the villa is great a few walk from the beach and 15 minute’s walk to go to Playa del Carmen. The villa is locate in a very quiet street and it is complete SAFETY. Luci was very helpful and reserved and Mr. Abel was always in a good mood. Hope we come back again.

Gorgeous villa, great character, ideal location

  • 5 of 5
Our group traveled to Playa for a family Christmas holiday and were completely at home in this beautiful villa. The home itself is full of charm, detail and good taste, including an excellent collection of Mexican folk art hung artfully throughout the house. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, the rooftop patio has a stunning view, and the kitchen is plenty spacious and equipped for cooking. We enjoyed time by the pool, in the hammock, on the roof—but especially on the beach, which is just steps from the villa door.

Luci, the housekeeper, and Sr. Abel, the house manager, kept everything running smoothly while we were there and Gloria was very helpful and friendly during the planning process. We hired her cook for a day and absolutely enjoyed it. (I recommend doing that and also having the fridge stocked with groceries to save yourself the hassle of chasing to the grocery store by car.) We also really valued Gloria's help reserving the van service to and from the airport in Cancun.

A villa like this is perfect for a group of friends or family who want to be able to spread out while traveling. The location—inside a fascinated gated community with all kinds of architecture and even some small Mayan ruins—is a quick walk from town, which is full of shops, restaurants and bars.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic girls’ week in March at Villa Golondrina. The house and all its details exceeded our expectations – comfortable, spacious, but with plenty of local character. The pool and its beautiful landscaping made us almost never want to leave the house. However, one of the most beautiful pristine beaches we had ever seen was just steps from the front door, and practically deserted even during Spring Break. Town is close enough that you can easily walk for more adventure, but far enough that the house and beach are a peaceful paradise. We chose not to rent a car, and were very happy with that decision. We really enjoyed the ruins and walking/bike paths located nearby. Our day with the cook recommended by Gloria was a highlight – by far the best food we ate on the trip, and more economical as well.

The house had everything we needed for home and for beach – from plastic cups in every shape and size to scores of pots and pans, from beach chairs to hammocks. Gloria’s amazing staff, Abel and Luci, would come to clean every day, offer advice, and make sure we were comfortable. We are already planning our return trip for next year!

Every modern amenity at the villa has been carefully provided while incorporating the traditional building arts of Mexico in this contemporary vacation home. A striking example of the work of Mexico's finest craftsmen is the Moorish brick dome (boboda castellana) of the dining room and two bedrooms. Main floor air-conditioned bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fabrics and treasures from Mexico and Guatemala, and include stunning bathrooms, each with a shower of lovely Mexican tile amid lush tropical vegetation. The 2nd floor master suite (air-conditioned master bedroom) is a self-contained apartment with its own small kitchen. It is connected to the main floor via an interior staircase open to the sky. The suite offers a world of its own, a private romantic space in which one can totally relax. Its luxurious bathroom features a stunning white polished circular bathtub, and from a spacious veranda, master suite guests have breathtaking views of the aqua Caribbean & morning sunrise.
